[Newark, NJ – October 5, 2018] Newark Superintendent of Schools Roger León announced today that he will launch his Breakfast with the Superintendent series on Saturday, October 13, 2018. The first breakfast, which is for South Ward students and parents only, will be held at the Belmont Runyon School from 8:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.

Superintendent León said, “It is important for there to be clear lines of communication between parents, students and the school district – which is the reason why I created Breakfast with the Superintendent.” The Superintendent continued, “The purpose of the breakfast is for me to hear directly from the parents and students about their ideas on how we can work together to ensure academic success for our student scholars and provide the best school experience possible. The breakfast will also provide a forum for both the parents and students to be clear about the district’s goals and expectations for their child.”

The Superintendent indicated there are a number of topics he plans to discuss at the breakfast including attendance, academic achievement, curriculum, graduation, extracurricular activities and more. The breakfast meetings will be held in each of the city’s wards; North, East, Central and West, in addition to the South Ward meeting being held next week.

The breakfast meeting is free and open to students and parents in the respective ward, only. RSVP is not required to attend the breakfast.

The Superintendent said, “In order for our students to be their best, we must be our best. The breakfast provides an open door for each parent to engage with me and the district to ensure their student has the best academic experience possible and has the tools to be their best in everything they do.”

The Belmont Runyon School is located on 1 Belmont Runyon Way in Newark.
